November 12th to 14th at the Shelley Theatre Marlow.
Performances start at 8pm.
The Marlow Players are proud to announce that their next production, Terry Pratchett’s “Unseen Academicals”, will be performed at the Shelley Theatre, Court Garden, Marlow on Thursday November 12th until Saturday 14th.
Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork – not the old-fashioned, grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go gloing when you drop them. And now the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match without using magic, so they’re in the mood for trying everything else.
The prospect of the Big Match draws in a street urchin with a wonderful talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim but beautiful young woman, who might just turn out to be the greatest fashion model there has ever been, and the mysterious Mr Nutt. (No one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt, which worries him, too.)
As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and chaged for ever. Because the thing about football – the important thing about football – is that it is not just about football.
